Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble's a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, what's a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off. Jaxi has other plans for Blake's hands - and his heart. She may have once considered him a big brother, but that was a long time ago.
Jaxi's all grown up now and ready to convince him that she's perfect for him. Except he can't seem to see past the big "do not touch" sign that's apparently still hanging around her neck. When Jaxi ends up living right under Blake's nose, the heat between them slides past simmer and leaps up to barn-burning levels. However, a few of the younger six-pack Colemans have decided that Jaxi's brand of trouble is worth risking a few busted bones. That is, if Blake's finally ready to let go of the reins and fight for what he wants...

This book kept me engaged enough to drive from Ohio to Florida through the night! It wasn't too raunchy, and not too mushy- I loved it and can't wait to start book2! Also loved the narrator!
The narration was fine as was the story. It just the same ole same old. Maybe less raunchy than Lorelei James and her rough rider series.
I am a wife, mother, friend, teacher, technology coordinator, and avid reader of both audio and print books.
Sexy and heart felt story about the oldest son and the little girl from next door. Loved it and can't wait for the other 5 boys to have their happily ever after!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This is the beginning of an endearing compelling family saga about the Coleman family of Ranchers and, in particular, the 6 handsome troublesome brothers and their complicated questionable love lives.
Blake, the oldest of the brothers, is a handsome, hot, brooding, sexy, alpha male whose loyalty to his family and his morals are paramount in his life. But he has one dilemma - his control over his long-term secret attraction to the much younger, and therefore untouchable, family friend Jaxi has reached snapping point and it's about to be tested beyond it's limits. Jaxi's evolution from just having a childhood crush on Blake has changed into a desperate, longing and enduring love and she's going all out to capture him..... whatever it takes.
This vividly portrayed, emotionally tender, hot romance also gives us an insight into the personalities of the other five brothers, the parents and the characters in the community. It's an intense very enjoyable listen that's full of humor, drama, sexual chemistry, lust, hot sex, M/F/M action (not Blake and Jaxi), witty banter and sets the groundwork for the next book in the series Rocky Mountain Haven.
Worth a credit? Presumably there will be 6 books in this series and, based on this well written story, I'll happily be spending 6 credits - so that's a YES.
This is a really start to a really good series. The characters are engaging and make you want to come back for more. The family draws you in, building an environment you want to be in. It makes you believe in family and relationships. also it really starts presenting an appealing picture of Canada.
Read and listen to the rest, it's totally worth it.
I'm an avid reader/listener to a wide variety of books. I enjoy books from historical romance to science fiction.
Yay, I'm so happy that I. started this series! I loved it. The characters were great, and the story was very sweet. There. were no dull moments, it flowed well and kept me wanting to know what happened next. The narrator did a perfect job too.. I'm heading to the next book now, looking forward to the stories of the rest of the family.
Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
You will love this story. You will be pulled into this story and you will not stop till you finished
A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!
loved Blake & Jaxi story but, didn't like all the jumping around. Background characters should stay in the background till their story.
Great start to a very enjoyable series I look forward to the rest of the series being released in the future
